I’m 36 and originally from the East Coast of the United States – Boston, MA. Now I live in the Mid-West part of the country – Phoenix, AZ! What a difference! It seems like most people in Arizona aren’t originally from here, lol! The sun shines 99% of the time here. AZ is a huge state, “land of opportunity” I call it!
And by the way, I designed and made the fashion dress I am wearing in this picture. 😛
Fashion Design and Sewing are My Therapy. It’s an ADRENALINE RUSH from the time I arrive at the fabric shop, til the time I get back home and cut out patterns to create something new and distinctive.
I remember at the age of 18, 19 me sketching diagrams of fashion merchandise… Shoes, clothes, boots and costume jewelry. I’ve always had a passion for fashion. In my mind and creative eye, there are hundreds of brand new clothes designs that could be invented just from fabrics in stores.
When you get fabrics ordered online, it opens the vortex of designs even more because there’s much more fabric online than in stores. I get so excited that I can look at a particular material and say, “that’s a column dress design.” Or “that’s part of a dressy jumpsuit design.” I work well with laces, fishnets, sequins, patterns, prints, solids, furs, leathers, knits, stretches and non-stretches, prints and patterns. I CAN HELP! If I’m left in a room of fashion fabrics, I will create many designs, guaranteed!
